The Second Line Social Aid & Pleasure Society Brass Band is a large, not-for-profit, “raucous, stomp-your-foot-and-belt-out-the-choruses” activist New Orleans-style street band based in Somerville and Cambridge, Massachusetts. Our mission is to fight for social justice causes and support community events while having fun and spreading joy through our music.
We are also a part of the organizing force behind the HONK!Festival of activist street bands that takes place every October in Somerville’s Davis Square.
7/2021 - XONK Video Fundraiser for Jason Chandler
The song Xonk was co-written by Hungry March Band's amazing Jason Candler & Second Line's Ken Field. Jason is recovering from a bit of a set-back, and the band wanted to send our rendition out to him, along with our love and best wishes. Check out the video on YouTube!
